Wildly popular north Ballard teaching space The Pantry has completed its expansion with a second kitchen, meaning there are now more events, potlucks, and food swaps on the calendar, in addition to greater availability for private bookings. It's good news all around for fans of the perpetually sold-out space, which opened in 2011.

The Pantry raised more than $68,000 over the summer to help fund the construction, which started in mid-September and took three months to complete.

"We're super excited to finally have space to accommodate more students and offer even more classes and events," Pantry owner Brandi Henderson says. "We'd also like to make the space available to cookbook authors for book events, or as a production kitchen to help local foodmakers who are just starting out."

The Pantry says this new build-out will allow it to double the number of classes offered each month, and its monthly family-style dinners will now serve 40 diners instead of 24.
